Dentists are trained to give people a healthier and more attractive smile and most dental practices offer services in cosmetic dentistry, so wouldn’t it make sense that they also improve the overall appearance of your face as well? Dentists have extensive training in facial anatomy, which makes them the best option for facial rejuvenation procedures. At WisconsinSmiles in West Allis, WI we offer our patients several facial rejuvenation treatments to give them the ability to get a complete mouth and facial makeover in the same place.
Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscles under the skin that are causing wrinkles such as the ones between your eyebrows, the corners of your eyes, and on the sides of your mouth. Dr. Roberto Monteagudo is trained to only inject BOTOX into the muscles that are causing wrinkles so you can still move your face freely and comfortably. The treatment only takes about ten minutes so you can get a younger appearance on a busy schedule.
These injections are not just for aesthetic appeal, but can also be used to treat facial tension, temporomandibular joint disorder, and jaw pain. BOTOX injection can help relax the muscles around your jaw to temporarily reduce or relieve symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and stiffness. Because the treatment is done by your dentist, you can also discuss more permanent treatment options during your appointment.
If you already have lines and wrinkles that cannot be relaxed with BOTOX injections, Juvederm can help. Juvederm uses an injectable filler to soften deeper wrinkles and folds. It is made up of hyaluronic acid which is found in the skin and muscles of mammals. The results of a Juvederm treatment usually lasts six to nine months before a touch-up treatment is needed.
As we age, it is natural for our faces to become lined and wrinkled, but BOTOX and Juvederm treatments can help give you a younger appearance. When paired with your cosmetic dentistry treatments, facial rejuvenation can give you a whole face makeover.
